I have upgraded to Intel Macs and Bonic software. I remove all old Seti@home programs manually. When I return from the screensaver and log on, I get the message
" CarbonApp

The SETI@home Screensaver could not find the SETI@home_OSX application.

Please make sure it is in the Applications folder."

Any ideas to remove this error message from recurring?

Gosh, this sounds like an old seti classic issue...

Look for a 'seti@home screensaver' folder in /Library
Look for a 'seti' folder in /Library/Startup Items

If you see anything other than a 'BOINC Data' folder in /Library or a 'boincsaver' file in the normal /Library/Screensavers folder... Remove it...

Although, I'm not quite sure how seti classic got installed on your new intel macs... ;)
